The INCRA Jig that started it all more than twenty
years ago has been reissued, and the same qualities
that made it such a knockout then are still relevant
in workshops today.
The only two moving parts are the locking knob and
the single-piece upper carriage. Its as simple
and reliable as your favorite hammer, yet it indexes
on 1/32 increments with the same 1/1000
positioning accuracy and repeatability of our top-of-the-line
The rigid, glass-reinforced resin body consists
of upper and lower halves and provides 8 or 200mm of
solid fence travel. Our
patented incremental racks are installed
where the halves of the jig meet, with each rack
offering hundreds of teeth on a precise 1/32
spacing. When the clamping knob is tightened, the
teeth mesh, causing the fence and carriage to instantly
center up on perfect multiples of 1/32
five to ten times more precisely than working by
By adding a fence and a couple of simple fixtures
(either shop-made or purchased as part of the INCRA
Jig Fence System), 3/8 box joint and 1/2
dovetails can be produced equally spaced or variably
spaced. The 1/2 dovetail template can also
be made half-blind, through, sliding, or cornerpost.
For even more variety, the 11 box joint templates
and 29 dovetail templates from the INCRA
Master Reference Guide can be adapted to the
Original INCRA Jig to produce literally billions
of joinery variations.
|And keep in mind
that INCRA Jigs arent just for box joints
and dovetails. The incremental nature of the Jig
causes fence setups for any repetitive cutting operations
such as grooving and fluting to suddenly become
lightning fast and dead-on accurate. Adding a fence
with a larger router bit opening makes it simple
to remove material in controlled steps when doing
everyday edge forming operations.
Though it was made famous by router work, the Original
INCRA Jigs compact size makes it perfect for
use at a variety of different machines, really anywhere
you have a need for a sturdy, accurate, and repeatable
fence positioner. Positioning the fence on a drill
press table or re-sawing lumber at the band saw
are only two of the possibilities.
Though the value of the reissued Original
INCRA Jig hasnt changed, the rest
of the package has benefitted from our 20+
years of experience manufacturing incremental
positioners. The printed instructions are
clear, concise, and fully illustrated. The FREE one-hour
instructional DVD covers basic setups,
user-made fixtures and accessories, and
several typical router table applications.
The DVD also moves on to directly illustrate
the processes of making basic box joints
and dovetails, and it even covers some of
the many joinery variations that can be
done with the two included templates.
